This week’s dirt space is dedicated to driving home the point that the Santa Monica market is back to price levels we had not seen since 2007. Nice 2-story homes are selling for up to $1,000 per square foot and Buyers are clamoring to get them. If you have thought at all about selling, now, before capital gains taxes are raised, may prove to be the best time in years. Call me for a no obligation, updated price opinion and see if it makes sense for you to sell now.
